Job Market Perspective

We hope everyone had a fun and safe Fourth of July celebration with family and friends.  While you enjoyed the fireworks, barbeques, and a short workweek, you may have missed the headlines pertaining to America’s economy that is currently experiencing a "heat wave."  According to the latest jobs report released by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the U.S. economy scorched economic expectations in June, producing 222,000 jobs!  The BLS also revised its reported job numbers for the months of April and May, adding 47,000 new jobs.  Although the national unemployment rate inched up to 4.4%, it is still hovering just above its lowest level since 2001. The stock market has also remained hot, boosted by steady consumer spending, strong labor market data, and growth in exports. 

 

Although current economic conditions and jobs data remain positive, executive sentiment about the overall economy remains cautiously optimistic.  According to a new report published by The Conference Board, CEOs are optimistic about profit expectations over the next twelve months, although their view of the U.S. economy has slightly moderated.  Another report published by Deloitte finds that 65% of surveyed CFOs describe North American conditions as good, and 58% expect better conditions in a year.  When asked about concerns keeping CFOs up at night, the number one concern was the talent shortage, followed by political and policy uncertainty.  The talent shortage continues to create challenges for all employers, especially at the local level.  In fact, according to Chapman University’s recent economic forecast, future job growth at the local and state level will be constrained by the tight labor market and high cost of living.
